My take on the gift card cupcake

My MIL kept having folks keep her Rubbermaid. I told her I could remedy that. Gave her deviled egg container a spiffy monogram!

Now for my longest project to date...

I FINALLY finished the gift card cupcake that I wanted to add to Amanda's Graduation Party. I had seen this on youtube and wanted to put my Cricut to work on it. Cut the 6 " circle in cardstock. Did the flowers from Plantin Schoolbook in orange (A's favorite color) an even pulled out my old hot glue gun. I didn't want to give her a gift card - figured that cold hard cash could be more useful. So I once again used the plastic from the cartridges and made a little plastic sleeve that will help the greenbacks slide up and down like the giftcard. This project DID take a lot of time - I would estimate roughly 5 hours off and on but I was doing two at once. The second one I did not use ANY ribbon as recommended in the video only the wet paper technique that the whipped cream is done in. This one has yet to get the 'whipped cream/binder clip/cherry to hide and hold the gift card. No bling here either.

Happy Crafting!
